# WELCOME TO SQUID 3.0.STABLE6
# ----------------------------
#
# This is the default Squid configuration file. You may wish
# to look at the Squid home page (http://www.squid-cache.org/)
# for the FAQ and other documentation.
#
# The default Squid config file shows what the defaults for
# various options happen to be. If you don't need to change the
# default, you shouldn't uncomment the line. Doing so may cause
# run-time problems. In some cases "none" refers to no default
# setting at all, while in other cases it refers to a valid
# option - the comments for that keyword indicate if this is the
# case.
#
# Configuration options can be included using the "include" directive.
# Include takes a list of files to include. Quoting and wildcards is
# supported.
#
# For example,
#
# include /path/to/included/file/squid.acl.config
#
# Includes can be nested up to a hard-coded depth of 16 levels.
# This arbitrary restriction is to prevent recursive include references
# from causing Squid entering an infinite loop whilst trying to load
# configuration files.
# OPTIONS FOR AUTHENTICATION
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: auth_param
# This is used to define parameters for the various authentication
# schemes supported by Squid.
#
# format: auth_param scheme parameter [setting]
#
# The order in which authentication schemes are presented to the client is
# dependent on the order the scheme first appears in config file. IE
# has a bug (it's not RFC 2617 compliant) in that it will use the basic
# scheme if basic is the first entry presented, even if more secure
# schemes are presented. For now use the order in the recommended
# settings section below. If other browsers have difficulties (don't
# recognize the schemes offered even if you are using basic) either
# put basic first, or disable the other schemes (by commenting out their
# program entry).
#
# Once an authentication scheme is fully configured, it can only be
# shutdown by shutting squid down and restarting. Changes can be made on
# the fly and activated with a reconfigure. I.E. You can change to a
# different helper, but not unconfigure the helper completely.
#
# Please note that while this directive defines how Squid processes
# authentication it does not automatically activate authentication.
# To use authentication you must in addition make use of ACLs based
# on login name in http_access (proxy_auth, proxy_auth_regex or
# external with %LOGIN used in the format tag). The browser will be
# challenged for authentication on the first such acl encountered
# in http_access processing and will also be re-challenged for new
# login credentials if the request is being denied by a proxy_auth
# type acl.
#
# WARNING: authentication can't be used in a transparently intercepting
# proxy as the client then thinks it is talking to an origin server and
# not the proxy. This is a limitation of bending the TCP/IP protocol to
# transparently intercepting port 80, not a limitation in Squid.
#
# === Parameters for the basic scheme follow. ===
#
# "program" cmdline
# Specify the command for the external authenticator. Such a program
# reads a line containing "username password" and replies "OK" or
# "ERR" in an endless loop. "ERR" responses may optionally be followed
# by a error description available as %m in the returned error page.
# If you use an authenticator, make sure you have 1 acl of type proxy_auth.
#
# By default, the basic authentication scheme is not used unless a
# program is specified.
#
# If you want to use the traditional NCSA proxy authentication, set
# this line to something like
#
auth_param basic program /usr/lib/squid/ncsa_auth /etc/shadow
#
# "children" numberofchildren
# The number of authenticator processes to spawn. If you start too few
# Squid will have to wait for them to process a backlog of credential
# verifications, slowing it down. When password verifications are
# done via a (slow) network you are likely to need lots of
# authenticator processes.
# auth_param basic children 5
#
# "concurrency" concurrency
# The number of concurrent requests the helper can process.
# The default of 0 is used for helpers who only supports
# one request at a time. Setting this changes the protocol used to
# include a channel number first on the request/response line, allowing
# multiple requests to be sent to the same helper in parallell without
# wating for the response.
# Must not be set unless it's known the helper supports this.
# auth_param basic concurrency 0
#
# "realm" realmstring
# Specifies the realm name which is to be reported to the
# client for the basic proxy authentication scheme (part of
# the text the user will see when prompted their username and
# password). There is no default.
# auth_param basic realm Squid proxy-caching web server
#
# "credentialsttl" timetolive
# Specifies how long squid assumes an externally validated
# username:password pair is valid for - in other words how
# often the helper program is called for that user. Set this
# low to force revalidation with short lived passwords. Note
# setting this high does not impact your susceptibility
# to replay attacks unless you are using an one-time password
# system (such as SecureID). If you are using such a system,
# you will be vulnerable to replay attacks unless you also
# use the max_user_ip ACL in an http_access rule.
#
# "casesensitive" on|off
# Specifies if usernames are case sensitive. Most user databases are
# case insensitive allowing the same username to be spelled using both
# lower and upper case letters, but some are case sensitive. This
# makes a big difference for user_max_ip ACL processing and similar.
# auth_param basic casesensitive off
#
# === Parameters for the digest scheme follow ===
#
# "program" cmdline
# Specify the command for the external authenticator. Such
# a program reads a line containing "username":"realm" and
# replies with the appropriate H(A1) value hex encoded or
# ERR if the user (or his H(A1) hash) does not exists.
# See rfc 2616 for the definition of H(A1).
# "ERR" responses may optionally be followed by a error description
# available as %m in the returned error page.
#
# By default, the digest authentication scheme is not used unless a
# program is specified.
#
# If you want to use a digest authenticator, set this line to
# something like
#
# auth_param digest program /usr/bin/digest_auth_pw /etc/digpass
#
# "children" numberofchildren
# The number of authenticator processes to spawn (no default).
# If you start too few Squid will have to wait for them to
# process a backlog of H(A1) calculations, slowing it down.
# When the H(A1) calculations are done via a (slow) network
# you are likely to need lots of authenticator processes.
# auth_param digest children 5
#
# "realm" realmstring
# Specifies the realm name which is to be reported to the
# client for the digest proxy authentication scheme (part of
# the text the user will see when prompted their username and
# password). There is no default.
# auth_param digest realm Squid proxy-caching web server
#
# "nonce_garbage_interval" timeinterval
# Specifies the interval that nonces that have been issued
# to client_agent's are checked for validity.
#
# "nonce_max_duration" timeinterval
# Specifies the maximum length of time a given nonce will be
# valid for.
#
# "nonce_max_count" number
# Specifies the maximum number of times a given nonce can be
# used.
#
# "nonce_strictness" on|off
# Determines if squid requires strict increment-by-1 behavior
# for nonce counts, or just incrementing (off - for use when
# useragents generate nonce counts that occasionally miss 1
# (ie, 1,2,4,6)). Default off.
#
# "check_nonce_count" on|off
# This directive if set to off can disable the nonce count check
# completely to work around buggy digest qop implementations in
# certain mainstream browser versions. Default on to check the
# nonce count to protect from authentication replay attacks.
#
# "post_workaround" on|off
# This is a workaround to certain buggy browsers who sends
# an incorrect request digest in POST requests when reusing
# the same nonce as acquired earlier on a GET request.
#
# === NTLM scheme options follow ===
#
# "program" cmdline
# Specify the command for the external NTLM authenticator.
# Such a program reads exchanged NTLMSSP packets with
# the browser via Squid until authentication is completed.
# If you use an NTLM authenticator, make sure you have 1 acl
# of type proxy_auth. By default, the NTLM authenticator_program
# is not used.
#
# auth_param ntlm program /usr/bin/ntlm_auth
#
# "children" numberofchildren
# The number of authenticator processes to spawn (no default).
# If you start too few Squid will have to wait for them to
# process a backlog of credential verifications, slowing it
# down. When credential verifications are done via a (slow)
# network you are likely to need lots of authenticator
# processes.
#
# auth_param ntlm children 5
#
# "keep_alive" on|off
# If you experience problems with PUT/POST requests when using the
# Negotiate authentication scheme then you can try setting this to
# off. This will cause Squid to forcibly close the connection on
# the initial requests where the browser asks which schemes are
# supported by the proxy.
#
# auth_param ntlm keep_alive on
#
# === Options for configuring the NEGOTIATE auth-scheme follow ===
#
# "program" cmdline
# Specify the command for the external Negotiate authenticator.
# This protocol is used in Microsoft Active-Directory enabled setups with
# the Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox browsers.
# Its main purpose is to exchange credentials with the Squid proxy
# using the Kerberos mechanisms.
# If you use a Negotiate authenticator, make sure you have at least one acl
# of type proxy_auth active. By default, the negotiate authenticator_program
# is not used.
# The only supported program for this role is the ntlm_auth
# program distributed as part of Samba, version 4 or later.
#
# auth_param negotiate program /usr/bin/ntlm_auth --helper-protocol=gss-spnego
#
# "children" numberofchildren
# The number of authenticator processes to spawn (no default).
# If you start too few Squid will have to wait for them to
# process a backlog of credential verifications, slowing it
# down. When crendential verifications are done via a (slow)
# network you are likely to need lots of authenticator
# processes.
# auth_param negotiate children 5
#
# "keep_alive" on|off
# If you experience problems with PUT/POST requests when using the
# Negotiate authentication scheme then you can try setting this to
# off. This will cause Squid to forcibly close the connection on
# the initial requests where the browser asks which schemes are
# supported by the proxy.
#
# auth_param negotiate keep_alive on
#
#Recommended minimum configuration per scheme:
#auth_param negotiate program <uncomment and complete this line to activate>
#auth_param negotiate children 5
#auth_param negotiate keep_alive on
#auth_param ntlm program <uncomment and complete this line to activate>
#auth_param ntlm children 5
#auth_param ntlm keep_alive on
#auth_param digest program <uncomment and complete this line>
#auth_param digest children 5
#auth_param digest realm Squid proxy-caching web server
#auth_param digest nonce_garbage_interval 5 minutes
#auth_param digest nonce_max_duration 30 minutes
#auth_param digest nonce_max_count 50
#auth_param basic program <uncomment and complete this line>
#auth_param basic children 5
#auth_param basic realm Squid proxy-caching web server
#auth_param basic credentialsttl 2 hours
# TAG: authenticate_cache_garbage_interval
# The time period between garbage collection across the username cache.
# This is a tradeoff between memory utilization (long intervals - say
# 2 days) and CPU (short intervals - say 1 minute). Only change if you
# have good reason to.
#
#Default:
# authenticate_cache_garbage_interval 1 hour
# TAG: authenticate_ttl
# The time a user & their credentials stay in the logged in
# user cache since their last request. When the garbage
# interval passes, all user credentials that have passed their
# TTL are removed from memory.
#
#Default:
# authenticate_ttl 1 hour
# TAG: authenticate_ip_ttl
# If you use proxy authentication and the 'max_user_ip' ACL,
# this directive controls how long Squid remembers the IP
# addresses associated with each user. Use a small value
# (e.g., 60 seconds) if your users might change addresses
# quickly, as is the case with dialups. You might be safe
# using a larger value (e.g., 2 hours) in a corporate LAN
# environment with relatively static address assignments.
#
#Default:
# authenticate_ip_ttl 0 seconds
# ACCESS CONTROLS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: external_acl_type
# This option defines external acl classes using a helper program
# to look up the status
#
# external_acl_type name [options] FORMAT.. /path/to/helper [helper arguments..]
#
# Options:
#
# ttl=n TTL in seconds for cached results (defaults to 3600
# for 1 hour)
# negative_ttl=n
# TTL for cached negative lookups (default same
# as ttl)
# children=n Number of acl helper processes spawn to service
# external acl lookups of this type. (default 5)
# concurrency=n concurrency level per process. Only used with helpers
# capable of processing more than one query at a time.
# cache=n result cache size, 0 is unbounded (default)
# grace=n Percentage remaining of TTL where a refresh of a
# cached entry should be initiated without needing to
# wait for a new reply. (default 0 for no grace period)
# protocol=2.5 Compatibility mode for Squid-2.5 external acl helpers

# FORMAT specifications
#
# %LOGIN Authenticated user login name
# %EXT_USER Username from external acl
# %IDENT Ident user name

# %{Header} HTTP request header
# %{Hdr:member} HTTP request header list member
# %{Hdr:;member}
# HTTP request header list member using ; as
# list separator. ; can be any non-alphanumeric
# character.
#
# In addition to the above, any string specified in the referencing
# acl will also be included in the helper request line, after the
# specified formats (see the "acl external" directive)
#
# The helper receives lines per the above format specification,
# and returns lines starting with OK or ERR indicating the validity
# of the request and optionally followed by additional keywords with
# more details.
#
# General result syntax:
#
# OK/ERR keyword=value ...
#
# Defined keywords:
#
# user= The users name (login)
# password= The users password (for login= cache_peer option)
# message= Message describing the reason. Available as %o
# in error pages
# tag= Apply a tag to a request (for both ERR and OK results)
# Only sets a tag, does not alter existing tags.
# log= String to be logged in access.log. Available as
# %ea in logformat specifications
#
# If protocol=3.0 (the default) then URL escaping is used to protect
# each value in both requests and responses.
#
# If using protocol=2.5 then all values need to be enclosed in quotes
# if they may contain whitespace, or the whitespace escaped using \.
# And quotes or \ characters within the keyword value must be \ escaped.
#
# When using the concurrency= option the protocol is changed by
# introducing a query channel tag infront of the request/response.
# The query channel tag is a number between 0 and concurrency-1.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: acl
# Defining an Access List
#
# acl aclname acltype string1 ...
# acl aclname acltype "file" ...
#
# when using "file", the file should contain one item per line
#
# acltype is one of the types described below
#
# By default, regular expressions are CASE-SENSITIVE. To make
# them case-insensitive, use the -i option.
#
# acl aclname src ip-address/netmask ... (clients IP address)
# acl aclname src addr1-addr2/netmask ... (range of addresses)
# acl aclname dst ip-address/netmask ... (URL host's IP address)
# acl aclname myip ip-address/netmask ... (local socket IP address)
#
# acl aclname arp mac-address ... (xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx notation)
# # The arp ACL requires the special configure option --enable-arp-acl.
# # Furthermore, the ARP ACL code is not portable to all operating systems.
# # It works on Linux, Solaris, Windows, FreeBSD, and some other *BSD variants.
# #
# # NOTE: Squid can only determine the MAC address for clients that are on
# # the same subnet. If the client is on a different subnet, then Squid cannot
# # find out its MAC address.
#
# acl aclname srcdomain .foo.com ... # reverse lookup, client IP
# acl aclname dstdomain .foo.com ... # Destination server from URL
# acl aclname srcdom_regex [-i] xxx ... # regex matching client name
# acl aclname dstdom_regex [-i] xxx ... # regex matching server
# # For dstdomain and dstdom_regex a reverse lookup is tried if a IP
# # based URL is used and no match is found. The name "none" is used
# # if the reverse lookup fails.
#
# acl aclname http_status 200 301 500- 400-403 ... # status code in reply
#
# acl aclname time [day-abbrevs] [h1:m1-h2:m2]
# day-abbrevs:
# S - Sunday
# M - Monday
# T - Tuesday
# W - Wednesday
# H - Thursday

# A - Saturday
# h1:m1 must be less than h2:m2
# acl aclname url_regex [-i] ^http:// ... # regex matching on whole URL
# acl aclname urlpath_regex [-i] \.gif$ ... # regex matching on URL path
# acl aclname port 80 70 21 ...

# acl aclname proto HTTP FTP ...
# acl aclname method GET POST ...
# acl aclname browser [-i] regexp ...
# # pattern match on User-Agent header (see also req_header below)
# acl aclname referer_regex [-i] regexp ...
# # pattern match on Referer header
# # Referer is highly unreliable, so use with care
# acl aclname ident username ...
# acl aclname ident_regex [-i] pattern ...
# # string match on ident output.
# # use REQUIRED to accept any non-null ident.
# acl aclname src_as number ...
# acl aclname dst_as number ...
# # Except for access control, AS numbers can be used for
# # routing of requests to specific caches. Here's an
# # example for routing all requests for AS#1241 and only
# # those to mycache.mydomain.net:
# # acl asexample dst_as 1241
# # cache_peer_access mycache.mydomain.net allow asexample
# # cache_peer_access mycache_mydomain.net deny all
#
# acl aclname proxy_auth [-i] username ...
# acl aclname proxy_auth_regex [-i] pattern ...
# # list of valid usernames
# # use REQUIRED to accept any valid username.
# #
# # NOTE: when a Proxy-Authentication header is sent but it is not
# # needed during ACL checking the username is NOT logged
# # in access.log.
# #
# # NOTE: proxy_auth requires a EXTERNAL authentication program
# # to check username/password combinations (see
# # auth_param directive).
# #
# # NOTE: proxy_auth can't be used in a transparent proxy as
# # the browser needs to be configured for using a proxy in order
# # to respond to proxy authentication.
#
# acl aclname snmp_community string ...
# # A community string to limit access to your SNMP Agent
# # Example:
# #
# # acl snmppublic snmp_community public
#
# acl aclname maxconn number
# # This will be matched when the client's IP address has
# # more than <number> HTTP connections established.
#
# acl aclname max_user_ip [-s] number
# # This will be matched when the user attempts to log in from more
# # than <number> different ip addresses. The authenticate_ip_ttl
# # parameter controls the timeout on the ip entries.
# # If -s is specified the limit is strict, denying browsing
# # from any further IP addresses until the ttl has expired. Without
# # -s Squid will just annoy the user by "randomly" denying requests.
# # (the counter is reset each time the limit is reached and a
# # request is denied)
# # NOTE: in acceleration mode or where there is mesh of child proxies,
# # clients may appear to come from multiple addresses if they are
# # going through proxy farms, so a limit of 1 may cause user problems.
#
# acl aclname req_mime_type mime-type1 ...
# # regex match against the mime type of the request generated
# # by the client. Can be used to detect file upload or some
# # types HTTP tunneling requests.
# # NOTE: This does NOT match the reply. You cannot use this
# # to match the returned file type.
#
# acl aclname req_header header-name [-i] any\.regex\.here
# # regex match against any of the known request headers. May be
# # thought of as a superset of "browser", "referer" and "mime-type"
# # ACLs.
#
# acl aclname rep_mime_type mime-type1 ...
# # regex match against the mime type of the reply received by
# # squid. Can be used to detect file download or some
# # types HTTP tunneling requests.
# # NOTE: This has no effect in http_access rules. It only has
# # effect in rules that affect the reply data stream such as
# # http_reply_access.
#
# acl aclname rep_header header-name [-i] any\.regex\.here
# # regex match against any of the known reply headers. May be
# # thought of as a superset of "browser", "referer" and "mime-type"
# # ACLs.
#
# acl acl_name external class_name [arguments...]
# # external ACL lookup via a helper class defined by the
# # external_acl_type directive.
#
# acl aclname user_cert attribute values...
# # match against attributes in a user SSL certificate
# # attribute is one of DN/C/O/CN/L/ST
#
# acl aclname ca_cert attribute values...
# # match against attributes a users issuing CA SSL certificate
# # attribute is one of DN/C/O/CN/L/ST

# Only src type ACL checks are fully supported. A src_domain
# ACL might work at times, but it will not always provide
# the correct result.
#
#Default:
# ident_lookup_access deny all
# TAG: reply_body_max_size size [acl acl...]
# This option specifies the maximum size of a reply body. It can be
# used to prevent users from downloading very large files, such as
# MP3's and movies. When the reply headers are received, the
# reply_body_max_size lines are processed, and the first line where
# all (if any) listed ACLs are true is used as the maximum body size
# for this reply.
#
# This size is checked twice. First when we get the reply headers,
# we check the content-length value. If the content length value exists
# and is larger than the allowed size, the request is denied and the
# user receives an error message that says "the request or reply
# is too large." If there is no content-length, and the reply
# size exceeds this limit, the client's connection is just closed
# and they will receive a partial reply.
#
# WARNING: downstream caches probably can not detect a partial reply
# if there is no content-length header, so they will cache
# partial responses and give them out as hits. You should NOT
# use this option if you have downstream caches.
#
# WARNING: A maximum size smaller than the size of squid's error messages
# will cause an infinite loop and crash squid. Ensure that the smallest
# non-zero value you use is greater that the maximum header size plus
# the size of your largest error page.
#
# If you set this parameter none (the default), there will be
# no limit imposed.

# NETWORK OPTIONS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: http_port
# Usage: port [options]
# hostname:port [options]
# 1.2.3.4:port [options]
#
# The socket addresses where Squid will listen for HTTP client
# requests. You may specify multiple socket addresses.
# There are three forms: port alone, hostname with port, and
# IP address with port. If you specify a hostname or IP
# address, Squid binds the socket to that specific
# address. This replaces the old 'tcp_incoming_address'
# option. Most likely, you do not need to bind to a specific
# address, so you can use the port number alone.
#
# If you are running Squid in accelerator mode, you
# probably want to listen on port 80 also, or instead.
#
# The -a command line option may be used to specify additional
# port(s) where Squid listens for proxy request. Such ports will
# be plain proxy ports with no options.
#
# You may specify multiple socket addresses on multiple lines.
#
# Options:
#
# transparent Support for transparent interception of
# outgoing requests without browser settings.

# have such setup and experience that certain clients
# sporadically hang or never complete requests set
# disable-pmtu-discovery option to 'transparent'.
#
# name= Specifies a internal name for the port. Defaults to

# cache_peer sib2.foo.net sibling 3128 3130 proxy-only
#
# type: either 'parent', 'sibling', or 'multicast'.
#
# proxy-port: The port number where the cache listens for proxy
# requests.
#
# icp-port: Used for querying neighbor caches about
# objects. To have a non-ICP neighbor
# specify '7' for the ICP port and make sure the
# neighbor machine has the UDP echo port
# enabled in its /etc/inetd.conf file.
# NOTE: Also requires icp_port option enabled to send/receive

# sslcipher=...
# ssloptions=...
# front-end-https[=on|auto]
#
# use 'proxy-only' to specify objects fetched
# from this cache should not be saved locally.
#
# use 'weight=n' to affect the selection of a peer
# during any weighted peer-selection mechanisms.
# The weight must be an integer; default is 1,
# larger weights are favored more.
# This option does not affect parent selection if a peering
# protocol is not in use.
#
# use 'basetime=n' to specify a base amount to
# be subtracted from round trip times of parents.
# It is subtracted before division by weight in calculating
# which parent to fectch from. If the rtt is less than the
# base time the rtt is set to a minimal value.
#
# use 'ttl=n' to specify a IP multicast TTL to use
# when sending an ICP queries to this address.
# Only useful when sending to a multicast group.
# Because we don't accept ICP replies from random
# hosts, you must configure other group members as
# peers with the 'multicast-responder' option below.
#
# use 'no-query' to NOT send ICP queries to this
# neighbor.
#
# use 'background-ping' to only send ICP queries to this
# neighbor infrequently. This is used to keep the neighbor
# round trip time updated and is usually used in
# conjunction with weighted-round-robin.
#
# use 'default' if this is a parent cache which can
# be used as a "last-resort" if a peer cannot be located
# by any of the peer-selection mechanisms.
# If specified more than once, only the first is used.
#
# use 'round-robin' to define a set of parents which
# should be used in a round-robin fashion in the
# absence of any ICP queries.
#
# use 'weighted-round-robin' to define a set of parents
# which should be used in a round-robin fashion with the
# frequency of each parent being based on the round trip
# time. Closer parents are used more often.
# Usually used for background-ping parents.
#
# use 'carp' to define a set of parents which should
# be used as a CARP array. The requests will be
# distributed among the parents based on the CARP load
# balancing hash function based on their weight.
#
# 'multicast-responder' indicates the named peer
# is a member of a multicast group. ICP queries will
# not be sent directly to the peer, but ICP replies
# will be accepted from it.
#
# 'closest-only' indicates that, for ICP_OP_MISS
# replies, we'll only forward CLOSEST_PARENT_MISSes
# and never FIRST_PARENT_MISSes.
#
# use 'no-digest' to NOT request cache digests from
# this neighbor.
#
# 'no-netdb-exchange' disables requesting ICMP
# RTT database (NetDB) from the neighbor.
#
# use 'no-delay' to prevent access to this neighbor
# from influencing the delay pools.
#
# use 'login=user:password' if this is a personal/workgroup
# proxy and your parent requires proxy authentication.
# Note: The string can include URL escapes (i.e. %20 for
# spaces). This also means % must be written as %%.
#
# use 'login=PASS' if users must authenticate against
# the upstream proxy or in the case of a reverse proxy
# configuration, the origin web server. This will pass
# the users credentials as they are to the peer.
# This only works for the Basic HTTP authentication scheme.
# Note: To combine this with proxy_auth both proxies must
# share the same user database as HTTP only allows for
# a single login (one for proxy, one for origin server).
# Also be warned this will expose your users proxy
# password to the peer. USE WITH CAUTION
#
# use 'login=*:password' to pass the username to the
# upstream cache, but with a fixed password. This is meant
# to be used when the peer is in another administrative
# domain, but it is still needed to identify each user.
# The star can optionally be followed by some extra
# information which is added to the username. This can
# be used to identify this proxy to the peer, similar to
# the login=username:password option above.
#
# use 'connect-timeout=nn' to specify a peer
# specific connect timeout (also see the
# peer_connect_timeout directive)
#
# use 'digest-url=url' to tell Squid to fetch the cache
# digest (if digests are enabled) for this host from
# the specified URL rather than the Squid default
# location.
#
# use 'allow-miss' to disable Squid's use of only-if-cached
# when forwarding requests to siblings. This is primarily
# useful when icp_hit_stale is used by the sibling. To
# extensive use of this option may result in forwarding
# loops, and you should avoid having two-way peerings
# with this option. (for example to deny peer usage on
# requests from peer by denying cache_peer_access if the
# source is a peer)
#
# use 'max-conn=n' to limit the amount of connections Squid
# may open to this peer.
#
# use 'htcp' to send HTCP, instead of ICP, queries
# to the neighbor. You probably also want to
# set the "icp port" to 4827 instead of 3130.
# You MUST also set htcp_access expicitly. The default of
# deny all will prevent peer traffic.
#
# use 'htcp-oldsquid' to send HTCP to old Squid versions
# You MUST also set htcp_access expicitly. The default of
# deny all will prevent peer traffic.
#
# 'originserver' causes this parent peer to be contacted as
# a origin server. Meant to be used in accelerator setups.
#
# use 'name=xxx' if you have multiple peers on the same
# host but different ports. This name can be used to
# differentiate the peers in cache_peer_access and similar
# directives.
#
# use 'forceddomain=name' to forcibly set the Host header
# of requests forwarded to this peer. Useful in accelerator
# setups where the server (peer) expects a certain domain
# name and using redirectors to feed this domain name
# is not feasible.
#
# use 'ssl' to indicate connections to this peer should
# be SSL/TLS encrypted.
#
# use 'sslcert=/path/to/ssl/certificate' to specify a client
# SSL certificate to use when connecting to this peer.
#
# use 'sslkey=/path/to/ssl/key' to specify the private SSL
# key corresponding to sslcert above. If 'sslkey' is not
# specified 'sslcert' is assumed to reference a
# combined file containing both the certificate and the key.
#
# use sslversion=1|2|3|4 to specify the SSL version to use
# when connecting to this peer
# 1 = automatic (default)
# 2 = SSL v2 only
# 3 = SSL v3 only
# 4 = TLS v1 only
#
# use sslcipher=... to specify the list of valid SSL ciphers
# to use when connecting to this peer.
#

# NO_SSLv3 Disallow the use of SSLv3
# NO_TLSv1 Disallow the use of TLSv1
# See src/ssl_support.c or the OpenSSL documentation for

#
# use sslcrlfile=... to specify a certificate revocation
# list file to use when verifying the peer certificate.
#
# use sslflags=... to specify various flags modifying the

# DONT_VERIFY_PEER
# Accept certificates even if they fail to
# verify.
# NO_DEFAULT_CA
# Don't use the default CA list built in
# to OpenSSL.
# DONT_VERIFY_DOMAIN
# Don't verify the peer certificate
# matches the server name
#
# use ssldomain= to specify the peer name as advertised
# in it's certificate. Used for verifying the correctness
# of the received peer certificate. If not specified the
# peer hostname will be used.
#
# use front-end-https to enable the "Front-End-Https: On"
# header needed when using Squid as a SSL frontend in front
# of Microsoft OWA. See MS KB document Q307347 for details
# on this header. If set to auto the header will
# only be added if the request is forwarded as a https://
# URL.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: cache_peer_domain
# Use to limit the domains for which a neighbor cache will be
# queried. Usage:
#
# cache_peer_domain cache-host domain [domain ...]
# cache_peer_domain cache-host !domain
#
# For example, specifying
#
# cache_peer_domain parent.foo.net .edu
#
# has the effect such that UDP query packets are sent to
# 'bigserver' only when the requested object exists on a
# server in the .edu domain. Prefixing the domainname
# with '!' means the cache will be queried for objects
# NOT in that domain.
#
# NOTE: * Any number of domains may be given for a cache-host,
# either on the same or separate lines.
# * When multiple domains are given for a particular
# cache-host, the first matched domain is applied.
# * Cache hosts with no domain restrictions are queried
# for all requests.
# * There are no defaults.
# * There is also a 'cache_peer_access' tag in the ACL
# section.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: cache_peer_access
# Similar to 'cache_peer_domain' but provides more flexibility by
# using ACL elements.
#
# cache_peer_access cache-host allow|deny [!]aclname ...
#
# The syntax is identical to 'http_access' and the other lists of

#
#Default:

#
# Modifying the neighbor type for specific domains is now
# possible. You can treat some domains differently than the the
# default neighbor type specified on the 'cache_peer' line.
# Normally it should only be necessary to list domains which
# should be treated differently because the default neighbor type
# applies for hostnames which do not match domains listed here.
#
#EXAMPLE:
# cache_peer cache.foo.org parent 3128 3130
# neighbor_type_domain cache.foo.org sibling .com .net
# neighbor_type_domain cache.foo.org sibling .au .de
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: dead_peer_timeout (seconds)
# This controls how long Squid waits to declare a peer cache
# as "dead." If there are no ICP replies received in this
# amount of time, Squid will declare the peer dead and not
# expect to receive any further ICP replies. However, it
# continues to send ICP queries, and will mark the peer as
# alive upon receipt of the first subsequent ICP reply.
#
# This timeout also affects when Squid expects to receive ICP
# replies from peers. If more than 'dead_peer' seconds have
# passed since the last ICP reply was received, Squid will not
# expect to receive an ICP reply on the next query. Thus, if
# your time between requests is greater than this timeout, you
# will see a lot of requests sent DIRECT to origin servers
# instead of to your parents.
#
#Default:
# dead_peer_timeout 10 seconds
# TAG: hierarchy_stoplist
# A list of words which, if found in a URL, cause the object to
# be handled directly by this cache. In other words, use this
# to not query neighbor caches for certain objects. You may

# MEMORY CACHE OPTIONS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: cache_mem (bytes)
# NOTE: THIS PARAMETER DOES NOT SPECIFY THE MAXIMUM PROCESS SIZE.
# IT ONLY PLACES A LIMIT ON HOW MUCH ADDITIONAL MEMORY SQUID WILL
# USE AS A MEMORY CACHE OF OBJECTS. SQUID USES MEMORY FOR OTHER
# THINGS AS WELL. SEE THE SQUID FAQ SECTION 8 FOR DETAILS.
#
# 'cache_mem' specifies the ideal amount of memory to be used
# for:
# * In-Transit objects
# * Hot Objects
# * Negative-Cached objects
#
# Data for these objects are stored in 4 KB blocks. This
# parameter specifies the ideal upper limit on the total size of
# 4 KB blocks allocated. In-Transit objects take the highest
# priority.
#
# In-transit objects have priority over the others. When
# additional space is needed for incoming data, negative-cached
# and hot objects will be released. In other words, the
# negative-cached and hot objects will fill up any unused space
# not needed for in-transit objects.
#
# If circumstances require, this limit will be exceeded.
# Specifically, if your incoming request rate requires more than
# 'cache_mem' of memory to hold in-transit objects, Squid will
# exceed this limit to satisfy the new requests. When the load
# decreases, blocks will be freed until the high-water mark is
# reached. Thereafter, blocks will be used to store hot
# objects.
#
#Default:
# cache_mem 256 MB
# TAG: maximum_object_size_in_memory (bytes)
# Objects greater than this size will not be attempted to kept in

#
# lru : Squid's original list based LRU policy
# heap GDSF : Greedy-Dual Size Frequency
# heap LFUDA: Least Frequently Used with Dynamic Aging
# heap LRU : LRU policy implemented using a heap

# The LRU policies keeps recently referenced objects.
#
# The heap GDSF policy optimizes object hit rate by keeping smaller
# popular objects in cache so it has a better chance of getting a
# hit. It achieves a lower byte hit rate than LFUDA though since
# it evicts larger (possibly popular) objects.
#
# The heap LFUDA policy keeps popular objects in cache regardless of
# their size and thus optimizes byte hit rate at the expense of
# hit rate since one large, popular object will prevent many
# smaller, slightly less popular objects from being cached.
#
# Both policies utilize a dynamic aging mechanism that prevents
# cache pollution that can otherwise occur with frequency-based
# replacement policies.
#
# NOTE: if using the LFUDA replacement policy you should increase
# the value of maximum_object_size above its default of 4096 KB to
# to maximize the potential byte hit rate improvement of LFUDA.

# TAG: cache_dir
# Usage:
#
# cache_dir Type Directory-Name Fs-specific-data [options]
#
# You can specify multiple cache_dir lines to spread the
# cache among different disk partitions.
#
# Type specifies the kind of storage system to use. Only "ufs"
# is built by default. To enable any of the other storage systems
# see the --enable-storeio configure option.
#
# 'Directory' is a top-level directory where cache swap
# files will be stored. If you want to use an entire disk
# for caching, this can be the mount-point directory.
# The directory must exist and be writable by the Squid
# process. Squid will NOT create this directory for you.
#
# The ufs store type:
#
# "ufs" is the old well-known Squid storage format that has always
# been there.
#
# cache_dir ufs Directory-Name Mbytes L1 L2 [options]
#
# 'Mbytes' is the amount of disk space (MB) to use under this
# directory. The default is 100 MB. Change this to suit your
# configuration. Do NOT put the size of your disk drive here.
# Instead, if you want Squid to use the entire disk drive,
# subtract 20% and use that value.
#
# 'Level-1' is the number of first-level subdirectories which
# will be created under the 'Directory'. The default is 16.
#
# 'Level-2' is the number of second-level subdirectories which
# will be created under each first-level directory. The default
# is 256.
#
# The aufs store type:
#
# "aufs" uses the same storage format as "ufs", utilizing
# POSIX-threads to avoid blocking the main Squid process on
# disk-I/O. This was formerly known in Squid as async-io.
#
# cache_dir aufs Directory-Name Mbytes L1 L2 [options]
#
# see argument descriptions under ufs above
#
# The diskd store type:
#
# "diskd" uses the same storage format as "ufs", utilizing a
# separate process to avoid blocking the main Squid process on
# disk-I/O.
#
# cache_dir diskd Directory-Name Mbytes L1 L2 [options] [Q1=n] [Q2=n]
#
# see argument descriptions under ufs above
#
# Q1 specifies the number of unacknowledged I/O requests when Squid
# stops opening new files. If this many messages are in the queues,
# Squid won't open new files. Default is 64
#
# Q2 specifies the number of unacknowledged messages when Squid
# starts blocking. If this many messages are in the queues,
# Squid blocks until it receives some replies. Default is 72
#
# When Q1 < Q2 (the default), the cache directory is optimized
# for lower response time at the expense of a decrease in hit
# ratio. If Q1 > Q2, the cache directory is optimized for
# higher hit ratio at the expense of an increase in response
# time.
#
# The coss store type:
#
# block-size=n defines the "block size" for COSS cache_dir's.
# Squid uses file numbers as block numbers. Since file numbers
# are limited to 24 bits, the block size determines the maximum
# size of the COSS partition. The default is 512 bytes, which
# leads to a maximum cache_dir size of 512<<24, or 8 GB. Note
# you should not change the coss block size after Squid
# has written some objects to the cache_dir.
#
# The coss file store has changed from 2.5. Now it uses a file
# called 'stripe' in the directory names in the config - and
# this will be created by squid -z.
#
# The null store type:
#
# no options are allowed or required
#
# Common options:
#
# no-store, no new objects should be stored to this cache_dir
#
# max-size=n, refers to the max object size this storedir supports.
# It is used to initially choose the storedir to dump the object.
# Note: To make optimal use of the max-size limits you should order
# the cache_dir lines with the smallest max-size value first and the
# ones with no max-size specification last.
#
# Note for coss, max-size must be less than COSS_MEMBUF_SZ,
# which can be changed with the --with-coss-membuf-size=N configure
# option.
#
#Default:
cache_dir ufs /var/spool/squid 384 16 256
# TAG: store_dir_select_algorithm
# Set this to 'round-robin' as an alternative.
#
#Default:
# store_dir_select_algorithm least-load
# TAG: max_open_disk_fds
# To avoid having disk as the I/O bottleneck Squid can optionally
# bypass the on-disk cache if more than this amount of disk file
# descriptors are open.
#
# A value of 0 indicates no limit.
#
#Default:
# max_open_disk_fds 0
# TAG: minimum_object_size (bytes)
# Objects smaller than this size will NOT be saved on disk. The
# value is specified in kilobytes, and the default is 0 KB, which
# means there is no minimum.
#
#Default:
# minimum_object_size 0 KB
# TAG: maximum_object_size (bytes)
# Objects larger than this size will NOT be saved on disk. The
# value is specified in kilobytes, and the default is 4MB. If
# you wish to get a high BYTES hit ratio, you should probably
# increase this (one 32 MB object hit counts for 3200 10KB
# hits). If you wish to increase speed more than your want to
# save bandwidth you should leave this low.
#
# NOTE: if using the LFUDA replacement policy you should increase
# this value to maximize the byte hit rate improvement of LFUDA!
# See replacement_policy below for a discussion of this policy.
#
#Default:
# maximum_object_size 4096 KB
# TAG: cache_swap_low (percent, 0-100)
# TAG: cache_swap_high (percent, 0-100)
#
# The low- and high-water marks for cache object replacement.
# Replacement begins when the swap (disk) usage is above the
# low-water mark and attempts to maintain utilization near the
# low-water mark. As swap utilization gets close to high-water
# mark object eviction becomes more aggressive. If utilization is
# close to the low-water mark less replacement is done each time.
#
# Defaults are 90% and 95%. If you have a large cache, 5% could be
# hundreds of MB. If this is the case you may wish to set these
# numbers closer together.

# access_log none [acl acl ...]]
#
# Will log to the specified file using the specified format (which

# If no acl is specified, all requests will be logged to this file.
#
# To disable logging of a request use the filepath "none", in which case
# a logformat name should not be specified.
#
# To log the request via syslog specify a filepath of "syslog":
#
# access_log syslog[:facility.priority] [format [acl1 [acl2 ....]]]
# where facility could be any of:

access_log /var/log/squid/access.log squid
# TAG: log_access allow|deny acl acl...
# This options allows you to control which requests gets logged

#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: cache_log
# Cache logging file. This is where general information about
# your cache's behavior goes. You can increase the amount of data
# logged to this file with the "debug_options" tag below.
#
#Default:
cache_log /var/log/squid/cache.log
# TAG: cache_store_log
# Logs the activities of the storage manager. Shows which
# objects are ejected from the cache, and which objects are
# saved and for how long. To disable, enter "none". There are
# not really utilities to analyze this data, so you can safely
# disable it.
#
#Default:
cache_store_log /var/log/squid/store.log
# TAG: cache_swap_state
# Location for the cache "swap.state" file. This index file holds
# the metadata of objects saved on disk. It is used to rebuild
# the cache during startup. Normally this file resides in each
# 'cache_dir' directory, but you may specify an alternate
# pathname here. Note you must give a full filename, not just
# a directory. Since this is the index for the whole object
# list you CANNOT periodically rotate it!
#
# If %s can be used in the file name it will be replaced with a
# a representation of the cache_dir name where each / is replaced
# with '.'. This is needed to allow adding/removing cache_dir
# lines when cache_swap_log is being used.
#
# If have more than one 'cache_dir', and %s is not used in the name
# these swap logs will have names such as:
#
# cache_swap_log.00
# cache_swap_log.01
# cache_swap_log.02
#
# The numbered extension (which is added automatically)
# corresponds to the order of the 'cache_dir' lines in this
# configuration file. If you change the order of the 'cache_dir'
# lines in this file, these index files will NOT correspond to
# the correct 'cache_dir' entry (unless you manually rename
# them). We recommend you do NOT use this option. It is
# better to keep these index files in each 'cache_dir' directory.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: logfile_rotate
# Specifies the number of logfile rotations to make when you
# type 'squid -k rotate'. The default is 10, which will rotate
# with extensions 0 through 9. Setting logfile_rotate to 0 will
# disable the file name rotation, but the logfiles are still closed
# and re-opened. This will enable you to rename the logfiles
# yourself just before sending the rotate signal.
#
# Note, the 'squid -k rotate' command normally sends a USR1
# signal to the running squid process. In certain situations
# (e.g. on Linux with Async I/O), USR1 is used for other
# purposes, so -k rotate uses another signal. It is best to get
# in the habit of using 'squid -k rotate' instead of 'kill -USR1
# <pid>'.
#
#Default:
# logfile_rotate 10
# TAG: emulate_httpd_log on|off
# The Cache can emulate the log file format which many 'httpd'
# programs use. To disable/enable this emulation, set
# emulate_httpd_log to 'off' or 'on'. The default
# is to use the native log format since it includes useful
# information Squid-specific log analyzers use.
#
#Default:
# emulate_httpd_log off
# TAG: log_ip_on_direct on|off
# Log the destination IP address in the hierarchy log tag when going
# direct. Earlier Squid versions logged the hostname here. If you
# prefer the old way set this to off.
#
#Default:
# log_ip_on_direct on
# TAG: mime_table
# Pathname to Squid's MIME table. You shouldn't need to change
# this, but the default file contains examples and formatting
# information if you do.
#
#Default:
# mime_table /etc/squid/mime.conf
# TAG: log_mime_hdrs on|off
# The Cache can record both the request and the response MIME
# headers for each HTTP transaction. The headers are encoded
# safely and will appear as two bracketed fields at the end of
# the access log (for either the native or httpd-emulated log
# formats). To enable this logging set log_mime_hdrs to 'on'.
#
#Default:
# log_mime_hdrs off
# TAG: useragent_log
# Squid will write the User-Agent field from HTTP requests
# to the filename specified here. By default useragent_log
# is disabled.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: referer_log
# Squid will write the Referer field from HTTP requests to the
# filename specified here. By default referer_log is disabled.
# Note that "referer" is actually a misspelling of "referrer"
# however the misspelt version has been accepted into the HTTP RFCs
# and we accept both.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: pid_filename
# A filename to write the process-id to. To disable, enter "none".
#
#Default:
pid_filename /var/run/squid.pid
# TAG: debug_options
# Logging options are set as section,level where each source file
# is assigned a unique section. Lower levels result in less
# output, Full debugging (level 9) can result in a very large
# log file, so be careful. The magic word "ALL" sets debugging
# levels for all sections. We recommend normally running with
# "ALL,1".
#
#Default:
# debug_options ALL,1
# TAG: log_fqdn on|off
# Turn this on if you wish to log fully qualified domain names
# in the access.log. To do this Squid does a DNS lookup of all
# IP's connecting to it. This can (in some situations) increase
# latency, which makes your cache seem slower for interactive
# browsing.
#
#Default:
# log_fqdn off
# TAG: client_netmask
# A netmask for client addresses in logfiles and cachemgr output.
# Change this to protect the privacy of your cache clients.
# A netmask of 255.255.255.0 will log all IP's in that range with
# the last digit set to '0'.
#
#Default:
# client_netmask 255.255.255.255
# TAG: forward_log
# Note: This option is only available if Squid is rebuilt with the
# -DWIP_FWD_LOG define
#
# Logs the server-side requests.
#
# This is currently work in progress.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: strip_query_terms
# By default, Squid strips query terms from requested URLs before
# logging. This protects your user's privacy.
#
#Default:
# strip_query_terms on
# TAG: buffered_logs on|off
# cache.log log file is written with stdio functions, and as such
# it can be buffered or unbuffered. By default it will be unbuffered.
# Buffering it can speed up the writing slightly (though you are
# unlikely to need to worry unless you run with tons of debugging
# enabled in which case performance will suffer badly anyway..).
#
#Default:
# buffered_logs off
# OPTIONS FOR FTP GATEWAYING
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: ftp_user
# If you want the anonymous login password to be more informative
# (and enable the use of picky ftp servers), set this to something
# reasonable for your domain, like wwwuser@somewhere.net
#
# The reason why this is domainless by default is the
# request can be made on the behalf of a user in any domain,
# depending on how the cache is used.
# Some ftp server also validate the email address is valid
# (for example perl.com).
#
#Default:
# ftp_user Squid@
# TAG: ftp_list_width
# Sets the width of ftp listings. This should be set to fit in
# the width of a standard browser. Setting this too small
# can cut off long filenames when browsing ftp sites.
#
#Default:
# ftp_list_width 32
# TAG: ftp_passive
# If your firewall does not allow Squid to use passive
# connections, turn off this option.
#
#Default:
# ftp_passive on
# TAG: ftp_sanitycheck
# For security and data integrity reasons Squid by default performs
# sanity checks of the addresses of FTP data connections ensure the
# data connection is to the requested server. If you need to allow
# FTP connections to servers using another IP address for the data
# connection turn this off.
#
#Default:
# ftp_sanitycheck on
# TAG: ftp_telnet_protocol
# The FTP protocol is officially defined to use the telnet protocol
# as transport channel for the control connection. However, many
# implementations are broken and does not respect this aspect of
# the FTP protocol.
#
# If you have trouble accessing files with ASCII code 255 in the
# path or similar problems involving this ASCII code you can
# try setting this directive to off. If that helps, report to the
# operator of the FTP server in question that their FTP server
# is broken and does not follow the FTP standard.
#
#Default:
# ftp_telnet_protocol on
# OPTIONS FOR EXTERNAL SUPPORT PROGRAMS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: diskd_program
# Specify the location of the diskd executable.
# Note this is only useful if you have compiled in
# diskd as one of the store io modules.
#
#Default:
# diskd_program /usr/lib/squid/diskd
# TAG: unlinkd_program
# Specify the location of the executable for file deletion process.
#
#Default:
# unlinkd_program /usr/lib/squid/unlinkd
# TAG: pinger_program
# Note: This option is only available if Squid is rebuilt with the
# --enable-icmp option
#
# Specify the location of the executable for the pinger process.
#
#Default:
# pinger_program /usr/lib/squid/pinger
# OPTIONS FOR URL REWRITING
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: url_rewrite_program
# Specify the location of the executable for the URL rewriter.
# Since they can perform almost any function there isn't one included.
#
# For each requested URL rewriter will receive on line with the format
#
# URL <SP> client_ip "/" fqdn <SP> user <SP> method [<SP> kvpairs]<NL>
#
# In the future, the rewriter interface will be extended with
# key=value pairs ("kvpairs" shown above). Rewriter programs
# should be prepared to receive and possibly ignore additional
# whitespace-separated tokens on each input line.
#
# And the rewriter may return a rewritten URL. The other components of
# the request line does not need to be returned (ignored if they are).
#
# The rewriter can also indicate that a client-side redirect should
# be performed to the new URL. This is done by prefixing the returned
# URL with "301:" (moved permanently) or 302: (moved temporarily).
#
# By default, a URL rewriter is not used.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: url_rewrite_children
# The number of redirector processes to spawn. If you start
# too few Squid will have to wait for them to process a backlog of
# URLs, slowing it down. If you start too many they will use RAM
# and other system resources.
#
#Default:
# url_rewrite_children 5
# TAG: url_rewrite_concurrency
# The number of requests each redirector helper can handle in
# parallel. Defaults to 0 which indicates the redirector
# is a old-style single threaded redirector.
#
#Default:
# url_rewrite_concurrency 0
# TAG: url_rewrite_host_header
# By default Squid rewrites any Host: header in redirected
# requests. If you are running an accelerator this may
# not be a wanted effect of a redirector.
#
# WARNING: Entries are cached on the result of the URL rewriting
# process, so be careful if you have domain-virtual hosts.
#
#Default:
# url_rewrite_host_header on
# TAG: url_rewrite_access
# If defined, this access list specifies which requests are
# sent to the redirector processes. By default all requests
# are sent.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: url_rewrite_bypass
# When this is 'on', a request will not go through the
# redirector if all redirectors are busy. If this is 'off'
# and the redirector queue grows too large, Squid will exit
# with a FATAL error and ask you to increase the number of
# redirectors. You should only enable this if the redirectors
# are not critical to your caching system. If you use
# redirectors for access control, and you enable this option,
# users may have access to pages they should not
# be allowed to request.
#
#Default:
# url_rewrite_bypass off
# OPTIONS FOR TUNING THE CACHE
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: cache
# A list of ACL elements which, if matched and denied, cause the request to
# not be satisfied from the cache and the reply to not be cached.
# In other words, use this to force certain objects to never be cached.
#
# You must use the words 'allow' or 'deny' to indicate whether items
# matching the ACL should be allowed or denied into the cache.
#
# Default is to allow all to be cached
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: refresh_pattern
# usage: refresh_pattern [-i] regex min percent max [options]
#
# By default, regular expressions are CASE-SENSITIVE. To make
# them case-insensitive, use the -i option.
#
# 'Min' is the time (in minutes) an object without an explicit
# expiry time should be considered fresh. The recommended
# value is 0, any higher values may cause dynamic applications
# to be erroneously cached unless the application designer
# has taken the appropriate actions.
#
# 'Percent' is a percentage of the objects age (time since last
# modification age) an object without explicit expiry time
# will be considered fresh.
#
# 'Max' is an upper limit on how long objects without an explicit
# expiry time will be considered fresh.

# override-expire enforces min age even if the server
# sent a Expires: header. Doing this VIOLATES the HTTP
# standard. Enabling this feature could make you liable
# for problems which it causes.
#
# override-lastmod enforces min age even on objects
# that were modified recently.
#
# reload-into-ims changes client no-cache or ``reload''
# to If-Modified-Since requests. Doing this VIOLATES the
# HTTP standard. Enabling this feature could make you
# liable for problems which it causes.
#
# ignore-reload ignores a client no-cache or ``reload''
# header. Doing this VIOLATES the HTTP standard. Enabling
# this feature could make you liable for problems which
# it causes.
#
# ignore-no-cache ignores any ``Pragma: no-cache'' and
# ``Cache-control: no-cache'' headers received from a server.
# The HTTP RFC never allows the use of this (Pragma) header
# from a server, only a client, though plenty of servers
# send it anyway.
#
# ignore-no-store ignores any ``Cache-control: no-store''
# headers received from a server. Doing this VIOLATES
# the HTTP standard. Enabling this feature could make you
# liable for problems which it causes.
#
# ignore-private ignores any ``Cache-control: private''
# headers received from a server. Doing this VIOLATES
# the HTTP standard. Enabling this feature could make you
# liable for problems which it causes.
#
# ignore-auth caches responses to requests with authorization,
# as if the originserver had sent ``Cache-control: public''
# in the response header. Doing this VIOLATES the HTTP standard.
# Enabling this feature could make you liable for problems which
# it causes.
#
# refresh-ims causes squid to contact the origin server
# when a client issues an If-Modified-Since request. This
# ensures that the client will receive an updated version
# if one is available.
#
# Basically a cached object is:
#
# FRESH if expires < now, else STALE
# STALE if age > max
# FRESH if lm-factor < percent, else STALE
# FRESH if age < min
# else STALE
#
# The refresh_pattern lines are checked in the order listed here.

# TAG: quick_abort_min (KB)
# TAG: quick_abort_max (KB)
# TAG: quick_abort_pct (percent)
# The cache by default continues downloading aborted requests
# which are almost completed (less than 16 KB remaining). This
# may be undesirable on slow (e.g. SLIP) links and/or very busy
# caches. Impatient users may tie up file descriptors and
# bandwidth by repeatedly requesting and immediately aborting
# downloads.
#
# When the user aborts a request, Squid will check the
# quick_abort values to the amount of data transfered until
# then.
#
# If the transfer has less than 'quick_abort_min' KB remaining,
# it will finish the retrieval.
#
# If the transfer has more than 'quick_abort_max' KB remaining,
# it will abort the retrieval.
#
# If more than 'quick_abort_pct' of the transfer has completed,
# it will finish the retrieval.
#
# If you do not want any retrieval to continue after the client
# has aborted, set both 'quick_abort_min' and 'quick_abort_max'
# to '0 KB'.

#Default:
# negative_ttl 5 minutes
# TAG: positive_dns_ttl time-units
# Upper limit on how long Squid will cache positive DNS responses.

#
#Default:
# positive_dns_ttl 6 hours
# TAG: negative_dns_ttl time-units
# Time-to-Live (TTL) for negative caching of failed DNS lookups.
# This also sets the lower cache limit on positive lookups.
# Minimum value is 1 second, and it is not recommendable to go
# much below 10 seconds.
#
#Default:
# negative_dns_ttl 1 minutes
# TAG: range_offset_limit (bytes)
# Sets a upper limit on how far into the the file a Range request
# may be to cause Squid to prefetch the whole file. If beyond this
# limit Squid forwards the Range request as it is and the result
# is NOT cached.
#
# This is to stop a far ahead range request (lets say start at 17MB)
# from making Squid fetch the whole object up to that point before
# sending anything to the client.
#
# A value of -1 causes Squid to always fetch the object from the
# beginning so it may cache the result. (2.0 style)

#Default:
# range_offset_limit 0 KB
# TAG: minimum_expiry_time (seconds)
# The minimum caching time according to (Expires - Date)
# Headers Squid honors if the object can't be revalidated
# defaults to 60 seconds. In reverse proxy enorinments it
# might be desirable to honor shorter object lifetimes. It
# is most likely better to make your server return a

# TAG: broken_posts
# A list of ACL elements which, if matched, causes Squid to send

#
# Some HTTP servers has broken implementations of PUT/POST,
# and rely on an extra CRLF pair sent by some WWW clients.
#
# Quote from RFC2616 section 4.1 on this matter:
#
# Note: certain buggy HTTP/1.0 client implementations generate an
# extra CRLF's after a POST request. To restate what is explicitly
# forbidden by the BNF, an HTTP/1.1 client must not preface or follow
# a request with an extra CRLF.

#Example:
# acl buggy_server url_regex ^http://....
# broken_posts allow buggy_server

#
#Default:

# TAG: ie_refresh on|off
# Microsoft Internet Explorer up until version 5.5 Service
# Pack 1 has an issue with transparent proxies, wherein it
# is impossible to force a refresh. Turning this on provides
# a partial fix to the problem, by causing all IMS-REFRESH
# requests from older IE versions to check the origin server
# for fresh content. This reduces hit ratio by some amount
# (~10% in my experience), but allows users to actually get
# fresh content when they want it. Note because Squid
# cannot tell if the user is using 5.5 or 5.5SP1, the behavior
# of 5.5 is unchanged from old versions of Squid (i.e. a
# forced refresh is impossible). Newer versions of IE will,
# hopefully, continue to have the new behavior and will be
# handled based on that assumption. This option defaults to
# the old Squid behavior, which is better for hit ratios but
# worse for clients using IE, if they need to be able to
# force fresh content.

# TAG: vary_ignore_expire on|off
# Many HTTP servers supporting Vary gives such objects
# immediate expiry time with no cache-control header

#
#Default:
# connect_timeout 1 minute
# TAG: peer_connect_timeout time-units
# This parameter specifies how long to wait for a pending TCP

# TAG: read_timeout time-units
# The read_timeout is applied on server-side connections. After

#
#Default:
# persistent_request_timeout 2 minutes
# TAG: client_lifetime time-units
# The maximum amount of time a client (browser) is allowed to
# remain connected to the cache process. This protects the Cache
# from having a lot of sockets (and hence file descriptors) tied up
# in a CLOSE_WAIT state from remote clients that go away without
# properly shutting down (either because of a network failure or
# because of a poor client implementation). The default is one
# day, 1440 minutes.
#
# NOTE: The default value is intended to be much larger than any
# client would ever need to be connected to your cache. You
# should probably change client_lifetime only as a last resort.
# If you seem to have many client connections tying up
# filedescriptors, we recommend first tuning the read_timeout,
# request_timeout, persistent_request_timeout and quick_abort values.
#
#Default:
# client_lifetime 1 day
# TAG: half_closed_clients
# Some clients may shutdown the sending side of their TCP
# connections, while leaving their receiving sides open. Sometimes,

# fully-closed TCP connection. By default, half-closed client
# connections are kept open until a read(2) or write(2) on the
# socket returns an error. Change this option to 'off' and Squid
# will immediately close client connections when read(2) returns
# "no more data to read."
#
#Default:

#
#Default:
# pconn_timeout 1 minute
# TAG: ident_timeout
# Maximum time to wait for IDENT lookups to complete.
#
# If this is too high, and you enabled IDENT lookups from untrusted

#
#Default:
# ident_timeout 10 seconds
# TAG: shutdown_lifetime time-units
# When SIGTERM or SIGHUP is received, the cache is put into
# "shutdown pending" mode until all active sockets are closed.

#Default:
# cache_effective_user squid
# TAG: cache_effective_group
# Squid sets the GID to the effective user's default group ID
# (taken from the password file) and supplementary group list
# from the groups membership.
#
# If you want Squid to run with a specific GID regardless of
# the group memberships of the effective user then set this
# to the group (or GID) you want Squid to run as. When set
# all other group privileges of the effective user are ignored
# and only this GID is effective. If Squid is not started as
# root the user starting Squid MUST be member of the specified
# group.
#
# This option is not recommended by the Squid Team.

# OPTIONS FOR THE CACHE REGISTRATION SERVICE
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
#
# This section contains parameters for the (optional) cache
# announcement service. This service is provided to help
# cache administrators locate one another in order to join or

# DELAY POOL PARAMETERS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: delay_pools
# This represents the number of delay pools to be used. For example,
# if you have one class 2 delay pool and one class 3 delays pool, you
# have a total of 2 delay pools.
#
#Default:
# delay_pools 0
# TAG: delay_class
# This defines the class of each delay pool. There must be exactly one
# delay_class line for each delay pool. For example, to define two
# delay pools, one of class 2 and one of class 3, the settings above
# and here would be:
#
#Example:
# delay_pools 4 # 4 delay pools
# delay_class 1 2 # pool 1 is a class 2 pool
# delay_class 2 3 # pool 2 is a class 3 pool
# delay_class 3 4 # pool 3 is a class 4 pool
# delay_class 4 5 # pool 4 is a class 5 pool
#
# The delay pool classes are:
#
# class 1 Everything is limited by a single aggregate
# bucket.
#
# class 2 Everything is limited by a single aggregate
# bucket as well as an "individual" bucket chosen
# from bits 25 through 32 of the IP address.
#
# class 3 Everything is limited by a single aggregate
# bucket as well as a "network" bucket chosen
# from bits 17 through 24 of the IP address and a
# "individual" bucket chosen from bits 17 through
# 32 of the IP address.
#
# class 4 Everything in a class 3 delay pool, with an
# additional limit on a per user basis. This
# only takes effect if the username is established
# in advance - by forcing authentication in your
# http_access rules.
#
# class 5 Requests are grouped according their tag (see
# external_acl's tag= reply).
#
# NOTE: If an IP address is a.b.c.d
# -> bits 25 through 32 are "d"
# -> bits 17 through 24 are "c"
# -> bits 17 through 32 are "c * 256 + d"
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: delay_access
# This is used to determine which delay pool a request falls into.
#
# delay_access is sorted per pool and the matching starts with pool 1,
# then pool 2, ..., and finally pool N. The first delay pool where the
# request is allowed is selected for the request. If it does not allow
# the request to any pool then the request is not delayed (default).
#
# For example, if you want some_big_clients in delay
# pool 1 and lotsa_little_clients in delay pool 2:
#
#Example:
# delay_access 1 allow some_big_clients
# delay_access 1 deny all
# delay_access 2 allow lotsa_little_clients
# delay_access 2 deny all
# delay_access 3 allow authenticated_clients
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: delay_parameters
# This defines the parameters for a delay pool. Each delay pool has
# a number of "buckets" associated with it, as explained in the
# description of delay_class. For a class 1 delay pool, the syntax is:
#
#delay_parameters pool aggregate
#
# For a class 2 delay pool:
#
#delay_parameters pool aggregate individual
#
# For a class 3 delay pool:
#
#delay_parameters pool aggregate network individual
#
# For a class 4 delay pool:
#
#delay_parameters pool aggregate network individual user
#
# For a class 5 delay pool:
#
#delay_parameters pool tag
#
# The variables here are:
#
# pool a pool number - ie, a number between 1 and the
# number specified in delay_pools as used in
# delay_class lines.
#
# aggregate the "delay parameters" for the aggregate bucket
# (class 1, 2, 3).
#
# individual the "delay parameters" for the individual
# buckets (class 2, 3).
#
# network the "delay parameters" for the network buckets
# (class 3).
#
# user the delay parameters for the user buckets
# (class 4).
#
# tag the delay parameters for the tag buckets
# (class 5).
#
# A pair of delay parameters is written restore/maximum, where restore is
# the number of bytes (not bits - modem and network speeds are usually
# quoted in bits) per second placed into the bucket, and maximum is the
# maximum number of bytes which can be in the bucket at any time.
#
# For example, if delay pool number 1 is a class 2 delay pool as in the
# above example, and is being used to strictly limit each host to 64kbps
# (plus overheads), with no overall limit, the line is:
#
#delay_parameters 1 -1/-1 8000/8000
#
# Note that the figure -1 is used to represent "unlimited".
#
# And, if delay pool number 2 is a class 3 delay pool as in the above
# example, and you want to limit it to a total of 256kbps (strict limit)
# with each 8-bit network permitted 64kbps (strict limit) and each
# individual host permitted 4800bps with a bucket maximum size of 64kb
# to permit a decent web page to be downloaded at a decent speed
# (if the network is not being limited due to overuse) but slow down
# large downloads more significantly:
#
#delay_parameters 2 32000/32000 8000/8000 600/8000
#
# There must be one delay_parameters line for each delay pool.
#
# Finally, for a class 4 delay pool as in the example - each user will

#
#delay_parameters 4 32000/32000 8000/8000 600/64000 16000/16000
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: delay_initial_bucket_level (percent, 0-100)
# The initial bucket percentage is used to determine how much is put
# in each bucket when squid starts, is reconfigured, or first notices
# a host accessing it (in class 2 and class 3, individual hosts and
# networks only have buckets associated with them once they have been
# "seen" by squid).
#
#Default:
# delay_initial_bucket_level 50
# WCCPv1 AND WCCPv2 CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: wccp_router
# TAG: wccp2_router
# Use this option to define your WCCP ``home'' router for
# Squid.
#
# wccp_router supports a single WCCP(v1) router
#
# wccp2_router supports multiple WCCPv2 routers
#
# only one of the two may be used at the same time and defines
# which version of WCCP to use.
#
#Default:
# wccp_router 0.0.0.0
# TAG: wccp_version
# This directive is only relevant if you need to set up WCCP(v1)
# to some very old and end-of-life Cisco routers. In all other
# setups it must be left unset or at the default setting.
# It defines an internal version in the WCCP(v1) protocol,
# with version 4 being the officially documented protocol.
#
# According to some users, Cisco IOS 11.2 and earlier only
# support WCCP version 3. If you're using that or an earlier
# version of IOS, you may need to change this value to 3, otherwise
# do not specify this parameter.
#
#Default:
# wccp_version 4
# TAG: wccp2_rebuild_wait
# If this is enabled Squid will wait for the cache dir rebuild to finish
# before sending the first wccp2 HereIAm packet
#
#Default:
# wccp2_rebuild_wait on
# TAG: wccp2_forwarding_method
# WCCP2 allows the setting of forwarding methods between the
# router/switch and the cache. Valid values are as follows:
#
# 1 - GRE encapsulation (forward the packet in a GRE/WCCP tunnel)
# 2 - L2 redirect (forward the packet using Layer 2/MAC rewriting)
#
# Currently (as of IOS 12.4) cisco routers only support GRE.
# Cisco switches only support the L2 redirect assignment method.
#
#Default:
# wccp2_forwarding_method 1
# TAG: wccp2_return_method
# WCCP2 allows the setting of return methods between the
# router/switch and the cache for packets that the cache
# decides not to handle. Valid values are as follows:
#
# 1 - GRE encapsulation (forward the packet in a GRE/WCCP tunnel)
# 2 - L2 redirect (forward the packet using Layer 2/MAC rewriting)
#
# Currently (as of IOS 12.4) cisco routers only support GRE.
# Cisco switches only support the L2 redirect assignment.
#
# If the "ip wccp redirect exclude in" command has been
# enabled on the cache interface, then it is still safe for
# the proxy server to use a l2 redirect method even if this
# option is set to GRE.
#
#Default:
# wccp2_return_method 1
# TAG: wccp2_assignment_method
# WCCP2 allows the setting of methods to assign the WCCP hash
# Valid values are as follows:
#
# 1 - Hash assignment
# 2 - Mask assignment
#
# As a general rule, cisco routers support the hash assignment method
# and cisco switches support the mask assignment method.
#
#Default:
# wccp2_assignment_method 1
# TAG: wccp2_service
# WCCP2 allows for multiple traffic services. There are two
# types: "standard" and "dynamic". The standard type defines
# one service id - http (id 0). The dynamic service ids can be from
# 51 to 255 inclusive. In order to use a dynamic service id
# one must define the type of traffic to be redirected; this is done
# using the wccp2_service_info option.
#
# The "standard" type does not require a wccp2_service_info option,
# just specifying the service id will suffice.
#
# MD5 service authentication can be enabled by adding
# "password=<password>" to the end of this service declaration.
#
# Examples:
#
# wccp2_service standard 0 # for the 'web-cache' standard service
# wccp2_service dynamic 80 # a dynamic service type which will be
# # fleshed out with subsequent options.
# wccp2_service standard 0 password=foo
#
#
#Default:
# wccp2_service standard 0
# TAG: wccp2_service_info
# Dynamic WCCPv2 services require further information to define the
# traffic you wish to have diverted.
#
# The format is:
#
# wccp2_service_info <id> protocol=<protocol> flags=<flag>,<flag>..
# priority=<priority> ports=<port>,<port>..
#
# The relevant WCCPv2 flags:
# + src_ip_hash, dst_ip_hash
# + source_port_hash, dest_port_hash
# + src_ip_alt_hash, dst_ip_alt_hash
# + src_port_alt_hash, dst_port_alt_hash
# + ports_source
#
# The port list can be one to eight entries.
#
# Example:
#
# wccp2_service_info 80 protocol=tcp flags=src_ip_hash,ports_source
# priority=240 ports=80
#
# Note: the service id must have been defined by a previous
# 'wccp2_service dynamic <id>' entry.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: wccp2_weight
# Each cache server gets assigned a set of the destination
# hash proportional to their weight.
#
#Default:
# wccp2_weight 10000
# TAG: wccp_address
# TAG: wccp2_address
# Use this option if you require WCCP to use a specific
# interface address.
#
# The default behavior is to not bind to any specific address.
#
#Default:
# wccp_address 0.0.0.0
# wccp2_address 0.0.0.0
# PERSISTENT CONNECTION HANDLING
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
#
# Also see "pconn_timeout" in the TIMEOUTS section
# TAG: client_persistent_connections
# TAG: server_persistent_connections
# Persistent connection support for clients and servers. By
# default, Squid uses persistent connections (when allowed)
# with its clients and servers. You can use these options to
# disable persistent connections with clients and/or servers.
#
#Default:
# client_persistent_connections on
# server_persistent_connections on
# TAG: persistent_connection_after_error
# With this directive the use of persistent connections after
# HTTP errors can be disabled. Useful if you have clients
# who fail to handle errors on persistent connections proper.
#
#Default:
# persistent_connection_after_error off
# TAG: detect_broken_pconn
# Some servers have been found to incorrectly signal the use
# of HTTP/1.0 persistent connections even on replies not
# compatible, causing significant delays. This server problem
# has mostly been seen on redirects.
#
# By enabling this directive Squid attempts to detect such
# broken replies and automatically assume the reply is finished
# after 10 seconds timeout.
#
#Default:
# detect_broken_pconn off
# CACHE DIGEST OPTIONS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: digest_generation
# This controls whether the server will generate a Cache Digest
# of its contents. By default, Cache Digest generation is
# enabled if Squid is compiled with --enable-cache-digests defined.
#
#Default:
# digest_generation on
# TAG: digest_bits_per_entry
# This is the number of bits of the server's Cache Digest which
# will be associated with the Digest entry for a given HTTP
# Method and URL (public key) combination. The default is 5.
#
#Default:
# digest_bits_per_entry 5
# TAG: digest_rebuild_period (seconds)
# This is the wait time between Cache Digest rebuilds.
#
#Default:
# digest_rebuild_period 1 hour
# TAG: digest_rewrite_period (seconds)
# This is the wait time between Cache Digest writes to
# disk.
#
#Default:
# digest_rewrite_period 1 hour
# TAG: digest_swapout_chunk_size (bytes)
# This is the number of bytes of the Cache Digest to write to
# disk at a time. It defaults to 4096 bytes (4KB), the Squid
# default swap page.
#
#Default:
# digest_swapout_chunk_size 4096 bytes
# TAG: digest_rebuild_chunk_percentage (percent, 0-100)
# This is the percentage of the Cache Digest to be scanned at a
# time. By default it is set to 10% of the Cache Digest.
#
#Default:
# digest_rebuild_chunk_percentage 10
# SNMP OPTIONS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: snmp_port
# The port number where Squid listens for SNMP requests. To enable
# SNMP support set this to a suitable port number. Port number
# 3401 is often used for the Squid SNMP agent. By default it's
# set to "0" (disabled)
#Default:
# snmp_port 0
#
#snmp_port 3401
# TAG: snmp_access
# Allowing or denying access to the SNMP port.
#
# All access to the agent is denied by default.
# usage:
#
# snmp_access allow|deny [!]aclname ...
#
#Example:
# snmp_access allow snmppublic localhost
# snmp_access deny all
#
#Default:
# snmp_access deny all
# TAG: snmp_incoming_address
# TAG: snmp_outgoing_address
# Just like 'udp_incoming_address' above, but for the SNMP port.
#
# snmp_incoming_address is used for the SNMP socket receiving
# messages from SNMP agents.
# snmp_outgoing_address is used for SNMP packets returned to SNMP
# agents.
#
# The default snmp_incoming_address (0.0.0.0) is to listen on all
# available network interfaces.
#
# If snmp_outgoing_address is set to 255.255.255.255 (the default)
# it will use the same socket as snmp_incoming_address. Only
# change this if you want to have SNMP replies sent using another
# address than where this Squid listens for SNMP queries.
#
# NOTE, snmp_incoming_address and snmp_outgoing_address can not have
# the same value since they both use port 3401.
#
#Default:
# snmp_incoming_address 0.0.0.0
# snmp_outgoing_address 255.255.255.255
# ICP OPTIONS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: icp_port
# The port number where Squid sends and receives ICP queries to
# and from neighbor caches. The standard UDP port for ICP is 3130.
# Default is disabled (0).
#Default:
# icp_port 0
#
icp_port 3130
# TAG: htcp_port
# The port number where Squid sends and receives HTCP queries to
# and from neighbor caches. To turn it on you want to set it to
# 4827. By default it is set to "0" (disabled).
#Default:
# htcp_port 0
#
#htcp_port 4827
# TAG: log_icp_queries on|off
# If set, ICP queries are logged to access.log. You may wish
# do disable this if your ICP load is VERY high to speed things
# up or to simplify log analysis.
#
#Default:
# log_icp_queries on
# TAG: udp_incoming_address
# udp_incoming_address is used for UDP packets received from other
# caches.
#
# The default behavior is to not bind to any specific address.
#
# Only change this if you want to have all UDP queries received on
# a specific interface/address.
#
# NOTE: udp_incoming_address is used by the ICP, HTCP, and DNS
# modules. Altering it will affect all of them in the same manner.
#
# see also; udp_outgoing_address
#
# NOTE, udp_incoming_address and udp_outgoing_address can not
# have the same value since they both use the same port.
#
#Default:
# udp_incoming_address 0.0.0.0
# TAG: udp_outgoing_address
# udp_outgoing_address is used for UDP packets sent out to other
# caches.
#
# The default behavior is to not bind to any specific address.
#
# Instead it will use the same socket as udp_incoming_address.
# Only change this if you want to have UDP queries sent using another

#
#Default:
# udp_outgoing_address 255.255.255.255
# TAG: icp_hit_stale on|off
# If you want to return ICP_HIT for stale cache objects, set this
# option to 'on'. If you have sibling relationships with caches
# in other administrative domains, this should be 'off'. If you only
# have sibling relationships with caches under your control,
# it is probably okay to set this to 'on'.
# If set to 'on', your siblings should use the option "allow-miss"
# on their cache_peer lines for connecting to you.
#
#Default:
# icp_hit_stale off
# TAG: minimum_direct_hops
# If using the ICMP pinging stuff, do direct fetches for sites
# which are no more than this many hops away.
#
#Default:
# minimum_direct_hops 4
# TAG: minimum_direct_rtt
# If using the ICMP pinging stuff, do direct fetches for sites
# which are no more than this many rtt milliseconds away.
#
#Default:
# minimum_direct_rtt 400
# TAG: netdb_low
# TAG: netdb_high
# The low and high water marks for the ICMP measurement
# database. These are counts, not percents. The defaults are
# 900 and 1000. When the high water mark is reached, database
# entries will be deleted until the low mark is reached.
#
#Default:
# netdb_low 900
# netdb_high 1000
# TAG: netdb_ping_period
# The minimum period for measuring a site. There will be at
# least this much delay between successive pings to the same
# network. The default is five minutes.
#
#Default:
# netdb_ping_period 5 minutes
# TAG: query_icmp on|off
# If you want to ask your peers to include ICMP data in their ICP
# replies, enable this option.
#
# If your peer has configured Squid (during compilation) with
# '--enable-icmp' that peer will send ICMP pings to origin server
# sites of the URLs it receives. If you enable this option the
# ICP replies from that peer will include the ICMP data (if available).
# Then, when choosing a parent cache, Squid will choose the parent with
# the minimal RTT to the origin server. When this happens, the
# hierarchy field of the access.log will be
# "CLOSEST_PARENT_MISS". This option is off by default.
#
#Default:
# query_icmp off
# TAG: test_reachability on|off
# When this is 'on', ICP MISS replies will be ICP_MISS_NOFETCH
# instead of ICP_MISS if the target host is NOT in the ICMP
# database, or has a zero RTT.
#
#Default:
# test_reachability off
# TAG: icp_query_timeout (msec)
# Normally Squid will automatically determine an optimal ICP
# query timeout value based on the round-trip-time of recent ICP
# queries. If you want to override the value determined by
# Squid, set this 'icp_query_timeout' to a non-zero value. This
# value is specified in MILLISECONDS, so, to use a 2-second
# timeout (the old default), you would write:
#
# icp_query_timeout 2000
#
#Default:
# icp_query_timeout 0
# TAG: maximum_icp_query_timeout (msec)
# Normally the ICP query timeout is determined dynamically. But
# sometimes it can lead to very large values (say 5 seconds).
# Use this option to put an upper limit on the dynamic timeout
# value. Do NOT use this option to always use a fixed (instead
# of a dynamic) timeout value. To set a fixed timeout see the
# 'icp_query_timeout' directive.
#
#Default:
# maximum_icp_query_timeout 2000
# TAG: minimum_icp_query_timeout (msec)
# Normally the ICP query timeout is determined dynamically. But
# sometimes it can lead to very small timeouts, even lower than
# the normal latency variance on your link due to traffic.
# Use this option to put an lower limit on the dynamic timeout
# value. Do NOT use this option to always use a fixed (instead
# of a dynamic) timeout value. To set a fixed timeout see the
# 'icp_query_timeout' directive.
#
#Default:
# minimum_icp_query_timeout 5
# TAG: background_ping_rate time-units
# Controls how often the ICP pings are sent to siblings that
# have background-ping set.
#
#Default:
# background_ping_rate 10 seconds
# MULTICAST ICP OPTIONS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: mcast_groups
# This tag specifies a list of multicast groups which your server
# should join to receive multicasted ICP queries.
#
# NOTE! Be very careful what you put here! Be sure you
# understand the difference between an ICP _query_ and an ICP
# _reply_. This option is to be set only if you want to RECEIVE
# multicast queries. Do NOT set this option to SEND multicast
# ICP (use cache_peer for that). ICP replies are always sent via
# unicast, so this option does not affect whether or not you will
# receive replies from multicast group members.
#
# You must be very careful to NOT use a multicast address which
# is already in use by another group of caches.
#
# If you are unsure about multicast, please read the Multicast
# chapter in the Squid FAQ (http://www.squid-cache.org/FAQ/).
#
# Usage: mcast_groups 239.128.16.128 224.0.1.20
#
# By default, Squid doesn't listen on any multicast groups.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: mcast_miss_addr
# Note: This option is only available if Squid is rebuilt with the
# -DMULTICAST_MISS_STREAM define
#
# If you enable this option, every "cache miss" URL will
# be sent out on the specified multicast address.
#
# Do not enable this option unless you are are absolutely
# certain you understand what you are doing.
#
#Default:
# mcast_miss_addr 255.255.255.255
# TAG: mcast_miss_ttl
# Note: This option is only available if Squid is rebuilt with the
# -DMULTICAST_MISS_STREAM define
#
# This is the time-to-live value for packets multicasted
# when multicasting off cache miss URLs is enabled. By
# default this is set to 'site scope', i.e. 16.
#
#Default:
# mcast_miss_ttl 16
# TAG: mcast_miss_port
# Note: This option is only available if Squid is rebuilt with the
# -DMULTICAST_MISS_STREAM define
#
# This is the port number to be used in conjunction with
# 'mcast_miss_addr'.
#
#Default:
# mcast_miss_port 3135
# TAG: mcast_miss_encode_key
# Note: This option is only available if Squid is rebuilt with the
# -DMULTICAST_MISS_STREAM define
#
# The URLs that are sent in the multicast miss stream are
# encrypted. This is the encryption key.
#
#Default:
# mcast_miss_encode_key XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
# TAG: mcast_icp_query_timeout (msec)
# For multicast peers, Squid regularly sends out ICP "probes" to
# count how many other peers are listening on the given multicast
# address. This value specifies how long Squid should wait to
# count all the replies. The default is 2000 msec, or 2
# seconds.
#
#Default:
# mcast_icp_query_timeout 2000
# INTERNAL ICON OPTIONS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: icon_directory
# Where the icons are stored. These are normally kept in
# /usr/share/squid/icons
#
#Default:
# icon_directory /usr/share/squid/icons
# TAG: global_internal_static
# This directive controls is Squid should intercept all requests for
# /squid-internal-static/ no matter which host the URL is requesting
# (default on setting), or if nothing special should be done for
# such URLs (off setting). The purpose of this directive is to make
# icons etc work better in complex cache hierarchies where it may
# not always be possible for all corners in the cache mesh to reach
# the server generating a directory listing.
#
#Default:
# global_internal_static on
# TAG: short_icon_urls
# If this is enabled Squid will use short URLs for icons.
# If disabled it will revert to the old behavior of including
# it's own name and port in the URL.
#
# If you run a complex cache hierarchy with a mix of Squid and
# other proxies you may need to disable this directive.
#
#Default:
# short_icon_urls on
# ERROR PAGE OPTIONS
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: error_directory
# If you wish to create your own versions of the default
# (English) error files, either to customize them to suit your
# language or company copy the template English files to another
# directory and point this tag at them.
#
# The squid developers are interested in making squid available in
# a wide variety of languages. If you are making translations for a
# langauge that Squid does not currently provide please consider
# contributing your translation back to the project.
#
#Default:
# error_directory /usr/share/squid/errors/English
# TAG: err_html_text
# HTML text to include in error messages. Make this a "mailto"
# URL to your admin address, or maybe just a link to your
# organizations Web page.
#
# To include this in your error messages, you must rewrite
# the error template files (found in the "errors" directory).
# Wherever you want the 'err_html_text' line to appear,
# insert a %L tag in the error template file.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: email_err_data on|off
# If enabled, information about the occurred error will be
# included in the mailto links of the ERR pages (if %W is set)
# so that the email body contains the data.
# Syntax is <A HREF="mailto:%w%W">%w</A>
#
#Default:
# email_err_data on
# TAG: deny_info
# Usage: deny_info err_page_name acl
# or deny_info http://... acl
# Example: deny_info ERR_CUSTOM_ACCESS_DENIED bad_guys
#
# This can be used to return a ERR_ page for requests which
# do not pass the 'http_access' rules. Squid remembers the last
# acl it evaluated in http_access, and if a 'deny_info' line exists
# for that ACL Squid returns a corresponding error page.
#
# The acl is typically the last acl on the http_access deny line which
# denied access. The exceptions to this rule are:
# - When Squid needs to request authentication credentials. It's then
# the first authentication related acl encountered
# - When none of the http_access lines matches. It's then the last
# acl processed on the last http_access line.
#
# You may use ERR_ pages that come with Squid or create your own pages
# and put them into the configured errors/ directory.
#
# Alternatively you can specify an error URL. The browsers will
# get redirected (302) to the specified URL. %s in the redirection
# URL will be replaced by the requested URL.
#
# Alternatively you can tell Squid to reset the TCP connection
# by specifying TCP_RESET.
#
#Default:
# none
# OPTIONS INFLUENCING REQUEST FORWARDING
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TAG: nonhierarchical_direct
# By default, Squid will send any non-hierarchical requests
# (matching hierarchy_stoplist or not cacheable request type) direct
# to origin servers.
#
# If you set this to off, Squid will prefer to send these
# requests to parents.
#
# Note that in most configurations, by turning this off you will only
# add latency to these request without any improvement in global hit
# ratio.
#
# If you are inside an firewall see never_direct instead of
# this directive.
#
#Default:
# nonhierarchical_direct on
# TAG: prefer_direct
# Normally Squid tries to use parents for most requests. If you for some
# reason like it to first try going direct and only use a parent if
# going direct fails set this to on.
#
# By combining nonhierarchical_direct off and prefer_direct on you
# can set up Squid to use a parent as a backup path if going direct
# fails.
#
# Note: If you want Squid to use parents for all requests see
# the never_direct directive. prefer_direct only modifies how Squid
# acts on cacheable requests.
#
#Default:
# prefer_direct off
# TAG: always_direct
# Usage: always_direct allow|deny [!]aclname ...
#
# Here you can use ACL elements to specify requests which should
# ALWAYS be forwarded by Squid to the origin servers without using
# any peers. For example, to always directly forward requests for
# local servers ignoring any parents or siblings you may have use
# something like:
#
# acl local-servers dstdomain my.domain.net
# always_direct allow local-servers
#
# To always forward FTP requests directly, use
#
# acl FTP proto FTP
# always_direct allow FTP
#
# NOTE: There is a similar, but opposite option named
# 'never_direct'. You need to be aware that "always_direct deny
# foo" is NOT the same thing as "never_direct allow foo". You
# may need to use a deny rule to exclude a more-specific case of
# some other rule. Example:
#
# acl local-external dstdomain external.foo.net
# acl local-servers dstdomain .foo.net
# always_direct deny local-external
# always_direct allow local-servers
#
# NOTE: If your goal is to make the client forward the request
# directly to the origin server bypassing Squid then this needs
# to be done in the client configuration. Squid configuration
# can only tell Squid how Squid should fetch the object.
#
# NOTE: This directive is not related to caching. The replies
# is cached as usual even if you use always_direct. To not cache
# the replies see no_cache.
#
# This option replaces some v1.1 options such as local_domain
# and local_ip.
#
#Default:
# none
# TAG: never_direct
# Usage: never_direct allow|deny [!]aclname ...
#
# never_direct is the opposite of always_direct. Please read
# the description for always_direct if you have not already.
#
# With 'never_direct' you can use ACL elements to specify
# requests which should NEVER be forwarded directly to origin
# servers. For example, to force the use of a proxy for all
# requests, except those in your local domain use something like:
#
# acl local-servers dstdomain .foo.net
# acl all src 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0
